I hate it when someone decides that nouns can be turned into verbs. It’s like, who gave you the authority to alter the English language?! Such is the case of Sony Pictures, warning moviegoers that 2011 is the year we all get Smurf’d. Yes, our animated blue friends are coming to New York.
I’m never a fan of real-life action mixing with animation, and after viewing the brief trailer, I have no reason to believe this movie will turn me into a believer.
The good news is that Hank Azaria (always a pleasure to watch) will play the evil Gargamel and Neil Patrick Harris will play an expectant father who has his world turned upside down by the Smurfs.
The plot consists of the Smurfs tumbling out of their magical world into our own and looking to find their way back, all while evading Gargamel.
Other players include Kenan Thompson, Katy Perry (in her first “acting” role), Wolfgang Puck, Alan Cumming, John Oliver, Fred Armisen, Jeff Foxworthy, Sofía Vergara, Jonathan Winters, George Lopez, Paul Reubens, B.J. Novak, Anton Yelchin, Jayma Mays, and Adam Wylie.
I’m not sure if this movie will tank or not, but I do know that Smurfette is gonna be hot in 3D!
